The key property of aluminum titanate is its very high thermal shock resistance. This means that larger temperature changes do not pose a problem for components made from this high-tech material. This property is just one advantage offered by our StarCeram AT. Because of its low wettability compared with molten aluminum and very good thermal isolation properties, aluminum titanate is recommended for applications in foundry technology, such as for riser tubes or sprue nozzles. However, aluminum titanate also demonstrates great versatility for specific applications in mechanical and plant engineering.
